Diego & Mayari | Pet Portrait Photography | Lafayette, IN

What fun to do some pet portrait photography for Diego and Mayari. I must admit that their dog’s name escapes me (how embarrassing) but he was such a wonderful little pup to work with. He responded perfectly to all my little tricks, getting him to look at the camera as often as needed. We obviously started here in our studio on Main Street, then we stepped outside for a...

Anna and Kyle | Winter Engagement Photography | Lafayette, IN

While we were out shooting in the snow, Anna asked me about her idea of doing snow angels. In the process of asking, she let me know that she was also worried of about it possibly being “cheesy”. I laughed and agreed with her that it could certainly go that way. I also knew...

A Historic Vacation | American Roots Music | Memphis, TN

Over the April 1st weekend I journeyed to Memphis, TN with some friends and clients to visit some of our nation’s historic music landmarks. Many of you are familiar with my role as the drummer of Moonshine Mason and the Rot Gut Gang, my 1940’s vintage country music band. The tour of Sun Recording Studios was especially meaningful, as the site still houses the first ever rock-n-roll record (Rocket 88 by Jackie Brenston) along with countless other relics including microphones used to record Elvis Presley. What a great time we had… if you’re in the area be sure and visit Gus’ World Famous Fried Chicken, you’ll be glad you did! Oh, did I mention we also visited Stax and Graceland?…
